In general, what do you consider your wardrobe cornerstones?
LT: A crisp white oversized shirt, a pair of black menswear-style suit trousers (ideally get them tailored to your body) and a steamer.
SHG: A well-tailored pair of black trousers, a matching oversized blazer and a crisp white shirt in summer or a quality black jumper in winter.
Preferred fabrics at the moment?
LT: Cashmere and Merino blend knitwear. I’m wearing knitwear every day!
SHG: Cashmere and wool blends, they’re so soft and comfortable.
The look you’re wearing most?
LT: Alba Sweatshirt in Navy with Luke Leggings.
SHG: My Rometty Tracksuit or Luke Leggings with a chunky knit.
What are your favourite pieces from the latest AW21 collection?
LT: The Jacqueline Coat is one of those pieces that you put on, and just feel better. It’s so warm but structured, it makes me stand up a little straighter. Even over a plain black tee and leggings it looks good.
SHG: The Dree Shirt, Joni Trouser and Alexandra Top story. This fabric is a wool/silk blend and has a chic sheen to it with contrast stitching.
Best piece of business advice you have ever received?
LT: Business isn’t in the spreadsheet, it’s in the people. Make sure to step away from the computer.
SHG: Never be complacent.
A woman who inspires you?
LT: My friends who are mums. Juggling life and working from home with toddlers- I have no idea how they do it, they’re incredible.
SHG: My sister. She has launched a financial literacy platform for women called 'The Curve' that’s taken off, all while holding down a demanding full-time job and still has the time to be an incredible, Aunty, friend, and sister.
What does HT look like in 10 years?
LT: More than clothes.
SHG: Championing women by designing a wardrobe to serve them is just the start of what we want to offer as a business.
